Sorcerer 06:15
Sorcerer, sorcerer, wicked, bent, and old Sorcerer, sorcerer, your tower dark and cold Sorcerer, sorcerer, up there in the sky Sorcerer, sorcerer, believer, weaving lies Potions brewing, Sacrifice! Devil's grip, unholy rites! Listen to your heart, I see you solely as you once were Sorcerer, you once were a child, not a man Sorcerer, thirsts for power any way he can Sorcerer, sorcerer, crooked, spent, and old Locked inside your tower, as the mystery unfolds Potions brewing, Sacrifice! Devil’s grip, unholy rites! Listen to your heart, I see you solely as you once were Blame it all on happenstance, your thoughts were warped, you had a chance Listen to your soul, I see you hardly as you once were Blame it on society, but point your finger quietly Listen to my heart, I see your soul as you really are! Blame it all on happenstance, your thoughts were warped, you had a chance Listen to your soul, I see you hardly as you once were Blame it on society, but point your finger quietly Listen to my heart, I see your soul as you really are!

I can see where you go I know all that you know Trust me and close your eyes Blind Prince sees through eyes of others Knows all of your dark desires Trust me and close your mind Fleeing from the life that you once knew Taking every chance to fight I am the one who is not blind All the world's underwater if you don't wake up Turn the people on each other with his evil thoughts Though my eyes are drawn across the sun and moon and stars Does not mean that I can see, yeah, he knows where you are!
4.
Never Leave 04:09
I saw an angel underneath the stars tonight Or maybe it was just a blinding silver light She knew a way to leave the world and cross the Atmosphere, crystal clear If I took her hand I saw an angel and I know that you were there Or maybe it was just your shining auburn hair She turned around and without speaking she said “Follow me, And you'll see To the end of the world” Carry on / Pass through your life Stop to breathe / Take in the sights Right or wrong / It matters not Never Leave / Without a thought I saw an angel in your moonlit, piercing gaze Or maybe it was just an opalescent haze She pulled me through the door and I knew that my Life had changed, Turn the page And she was gone

Cosmo 04:04
Once upon an evening, just before the dusk fell on the streets Chance brought Cosmo to the shop where the mirror is staring back at him Occupied his mind, though he tried to let it go And go home alone! Back into the storefront, withered man expecting his return Lies to maintain sanity, still the mirror is staring back at him Occupied her mind, though she tried, to let it go! And wake up alone! Cosmo looked in the mirror That’s where he saw her every night There she stood before him, though she never met his eyes She’s always dressed in white The room floods with pale moonlight; Her eyes they open wide Princess you must leave this place before your lover dies She rushes out to meet him, through thunder, wind and rain Cosmo broke his mirror, and will not live again!

Somehow 02:20
Somehow I got stuck between a rock and a brick wall And I waited there Tell me anything that you want, it might come to you Somehow I woke up, and you were standing by my side And I waited there Tell me everything that you know, and it might be true Stars align, but another hero dies Time doesn't matter anymore Somehow I got stuck between a rock and a brick wall And I waited there Waited endlessly, and then I knew I’d be alright without you
7.
Walk to the edge of the world Blame falls on innocent hands Guilt weighs down thoughts of the fallen Help me clear my clouded mind Sleep until time does not matter Blame falls on innocent hands Fool me and your heart will shatter Don't let yourself fall from grace Right the wrongs of the fallen Past shall warp to now Swallow up our world Within your gaping maw Blame falls on innocent hands Blame falls on innocent hands Blame falls on innocent hands Blame falls on innocent hands
8.
None of us knew where they had come from But somehow we all knew why they were here Someday you too will know the story And pass it on to generations come Why had they not prepared to face us They simply did not have man’s will to live Or had they simply given up all hope To give their lives before they turn to dust Winds! They ride the ancient winds! Oh how those winds did sing! Storms! They ride the blackened storms! Oh how those storms did crash! Dance! The men all dance! They cannot shout! Their lips are sealed forever in a silent scream In a violent dream of what’s to come Ancients! Changes! Seasons! Reason with yourselves before you’re lost Organize your thoughts before you change your mind Forever is quite lonely, and a long, long time None of us knew where they had come from But somehow we all knew why they were here Someday you too will know the story And then it won’t matter much at all!

The Vision 03:15
I creep into the bog Through the mists I wander Starlight shrouded by fog Betwixt the wild trees I wander I sight a ghostly clearing Shrouded by eerie light I sit down, spent and weary So that i may rest for the night And then I see her behind a smoky veil She floats before me clear as day Is this the horror that I've heard of in a tale? Has she come to take me away? Return to the realm of sleep Dreams foreshadow things to come Although I am tired and weak I arise to the first rays of the sun And I fear that I am not the only one
10.
I am stopped as I ride down the road By a man stoop’d in his years Behind his white hair and his long, crooked nose His gaze speaks to me of his fears His lips do not move, his eyes do not blink His robes do not sway in the breeze Twould be strange in a dream to be met By a man bent and wise such as he! He knows what I have just done He knows where I have just been He tells me of things I don't want to believe Of that cold, damp, evil scene. I am ashamed of myself Conscience disappeared Why has this happened, what will I do? Could this be what I feared? But I am stronger than this I know the power that I hold In a day I'll return, and take back my land And a new age will unfold Wasted... Waste away, you should Tell him... You'd tell him if you could Birthright... You were born to rule Sellout... You chose the path of a fool
